Sometimes, I think we forget that those cocktails we so enjoy can come with some hefty calories, so I’ve put together this list of skinny cocktails to help a bit with not overdoing our caloric intake. No worries though, these drinks are high on taste. Try one of these skinny cocktails. I think you’ll be surprised!

1. Faux-jito

Shape Magazine shares these skinny cocktails with us beginning with a low-calorie Mojito.

Ingredients:

Three or four mint leaves

A lime wedge

1 ounce white rum

Diet lemon-lime soda

Ice

Sugar (just for the rim of the glass)

Directions:

Muddle mint leaves with white rum and the juice from lime wedge (1/8 of the lime). Muddling is done by lightly crushing the mint (just until the leaves bruise) using a mortar and pestle or whatever you have on hand. Just don't shred the mint!

Run the squeezed lime wedge around the rim of the glass, and then dip the top of the glass in a shallow plate of granulated sugar to coat the rim. Pour the muddled mixture into your glass, fill with crushed ice, and top off with the diet soda.

6. Botanical Gin Martini

Gin has many health benefits, as it was developed as a health remedy before it became a social drink. It is also lower in calories than beer and wine.

Ingredients:

Dash of dry vermouth

2 ounces Bombay Sapphire Gin

1 botanical ice cube at the base of the glass

Directions:

Simply combine the vermouth, gin, and ice in a strainer, line the inside of a martini glass with frozen cucumber wheels, place one botanical ice cube at base of martini glass, strain the cocktail into your glass, and serve.

So, how do you make a botanical ice cube? Roughly chop two English cucumbers, leaving seeds and peels intact. Combine with 1 oz. of cilantro seeds and one cup of simple syrup (1/4 water 3/4 sugar) in a blender to puree. Strain the combination through a fine sieve and freeze in silicone mold or some container with a wide surface area for shaving ice. It'll make a great conversation starter at your next cocktail party!
